Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchinis — Blade C, noodles trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 big shrimps
  • salt and ground black pepper — to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves — minced
  • ½ cup onions — diced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup homemade tomato sauce
  • ½ cup cherry tomato

Instructions

  1. Using a knife, chop the ends off the zucchinis. Cut the zucchinis in half. Use a spiralizer fitted with a shredder blade C, secure, and spiralize the zucchini.
  2. Use kitchen scissors to trim noodles as the noodles come out. If you don’t trim, your noodles will be very long. I prefer to trim because they’re easier to eat. Set the noodles aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  4. Add shrimp, salt, and pepper. Stir occasionally and cook until pink and set aside.
  5. In the same skillet add garlic, onions and red pepper flakes. Cook until onions are golden brown.
  6. Add the zucchini noodles and cook for about 3 minutes. If you cook them any longer than that, the zucchinis can be a little soggy. Don’t forget to stir occasionally.
  7. When the zucchini noodles are ready, place them on two plates, top with homemade tomato sauce, shrimp, and cherry tomatoes! Enjoy your meal!
